Baby Albums - Three Girls & a Boy
Using this as my guide, I just completed orders for four baby albums - three girls and one boy. I had to improvise a little with a new album style, but I actually like the results even better!
I used a color scheme inspired by the Fancy Pants Dancing Girl paper line to alter my templates to make a more girly album, and instead of using circle punches for milestone & holiday labels, I used 6" x 1/2" strips that can lay right over a photograph, since the albums I used didn't have a margin for journaling. I love the albums, which have a faux leather cover and black inner pages.
I also bought a circle tab punch so that I could create monthly tabs for the album and use coordinating fonts and colors on the labels:
The inside of each album starts with a title card, with the baby's initials, name and birthdate:
Then, it jumps right into monthly stats, slots for photos and journaling cards, starting with birth and finishing up at 12 months. Each month features a different patterned paper embellishment in the same color scheme.
Each month has photo sleeves for at least ten 4" x 6" photos, and ends with a journaling card. It also includes "milestone" labels that are 6" x 1/2" strips that slide right over the bottom of a photograph.
The last section of the album includes photo sleeves for baby's first holidays: New Year's, Valentine's Day, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, ending with the First Birthday celebration and plenty of room for party pictures and first year portraits.
The boy version is very similar, with a brighter color scheme:
I love how these turned out and hope the girls who ordered them love them too! It's such an easy fill-it-in album that any new mom can keep up with (or fill in later!)
I'm taking orders! $75 per album plus shipping. E-mail me at email@example.com if you'd like me to make one for you. Allow about 4-6 weeks for delivery. I currently have a blue, pink and black album on hand for quicker turn-around.
